That Vibe was the very first vendor we booked to ensure they could make our intended wedding date. We have been to countless weddings with them as the band and knew they would book up fast. That Vibe always bring the party and are worth every penny because they make the night. Leading up to the wedding - Doug is amazing to work with. He offers countless suggestions having been around to see to see it all at various weddings and does a great and efficient job at collecting intended music taste and making the night come alive with the perfect set list. In addition, he helped me to remix a song for a mother son dance. The band the night of is a blast - the seemed to enjoy the party as much as we enjoyed them bringing the party. Lead singer Ted is a hit and even brought out an epic wig for our last song by Bon Jovi. All in all - when it comes to wedding bands this one is the best of the best. We cannot wait to see them at the next wedding later this year!

We hired “That Vibe” band to perform at my daughter’s wedding recently. They were definitely a huge hit with everyone who attended. The band is truly talented and has a great sound. Their repertoire was varied and catered to the young guests as well as those of us of the 60’s vintage. I was concerned having a twelve piece band play in our room which held only 150 guests, but the noise level was acceptable. “That Vibe” made my daughter’s wedding a very special and memorable event. I am so glad that we had them instead of a DJ.

That Vibe played our daughter's wedding this past weekend, and I can't say enough about their performance. I repeatedly had guests commenting on how great they were. The music, vocals, showmanship, professionalism, everything was first class. The dance floor was rocking from the first song to the last (played because everyone kept chanting, "one more song!") Great music was one of our top priorities, and they did not disappoint. This is honestly one of the best live bands I've ever heard. I would not hesitate to hire them again. Wish I had another party to throw! Many thanks to the band for making our reception so memorable. You're the best!

Best wedding band we've experienced. Wonderful vocalists and musicians! Dance floor was crowded from beginning to end, and they were even asked to play for an extra set for a half hour after they were scheduled to end because no one wanted to leave! Highly recommend!!

As i said the first time, the second time and now the third time and I will probably say the fourth and fifth time (5 daughters) we love THAT VIBE. They are flexible with what you want them to play, they are fun and damn good. Worth the money.

WOW!! That Vibe truly made our wedding. They were so professional, got the whole crowd up dancing, and played such a fun variety of songs. Doug was a pleasure to work with and was so quick to get back to me via email when we were planning the night. I am thoroughly impressed and could not recommend them higher. Their range of songs and vocals truly made for such a special and memorable evening. Thank you!!

Without a doubt, the best band. Period. So much hinged on their ability to keep the celebration on track and they went above and beyond. We turned the reception timeline on its head and they called it "innovative." They were determined to make every aspect they could affect about the reception, flawless. Incredible attention to detail -- a band's participation is so much more than great music when it's a wedding celebration. I cannot say enough about Doug Waitman and Ted Heath and all of the band members! I should add that their "sister" band, Rembrandt, is every bit as good. They are both under Fine Artists Entertainment. The music was incredible! The dance floor was to capacity!

This band is the most amazing band I have ever had. Their depth of music is incredible. They know how to get a party started and make it the best party ever. I always say parties are successful because of the people you include. And including these wonderful people proves my point

These guys are the best. Music is everything to us and having a live, dynamic group of talented musicians brought the life to the party. They worked with us on the set list, were very prompt in responding and working with us and worked hard to create the exact experience we wanted with our friends and family. Top notch professionals who are a lot of fun.

We LOVED That Vibe! From the ceremony to the cocktail hour to the reception, we could not have asked for a better band. If we could have extended them for another hour (we couldn't because we no longer had the venue), we would have because everyone was having such an incredible time on the dance floor!

That Vibe was the best wedding band EVER! The dance floor was packed the entire time and several guests commented that they've never danced so much at a wedding, because the band was SO good. It was also really great working with Doug leading up to the wedding. He took into account all of our requests and helped us put together the timeline for the entire reception. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a band!!

Stop looking elsewhere. They aren't easy on your budget, but they're totally worth it! Just amazing! Our guests raved about them - they were spilling off the dance floor and onto the grass all evening (and we had a big dance floor!) From Usher to Etta James, they play it all - so much talent!! Loved them!!

I would have sacrificed just about any other part of our wedding cost for this band! They are absolutely in a league of their own! This is by far the best wedding band I have ever seen. I am Australian and my husband and I had 43 Australians fly into LA for our wedding. SO impressed were these hard partying Aussies with the band that they are talking about flying them out to Australia! I truly cannot recommend them highly enough. Doug who manages the whole process from the time you ask questions about booking to the day of the wedding would respond almost immediately to any question we had. He was so helpful and accommodating and professional. I have never worked with someone in any industry who was so on top of their game and helpful. The band are just off the charts. We had 11 band members and their ability to play any song and make you think like you are listening to the original artist is truly a gift. They were just superb. I can't rave enough about them. If you can find any way to swing this band, do it! They are just the best and our wedding would not have had the same 'vibe' without them!

We could not be more delighted with Doug and the That Vibe performers! Doug was extremely responsive throughout the process. He answered all questions promptly and fully and had many helpful suggestions. A few weeks before the wedding, he supplied a comprehensive outline which helped out daughter and her fiancé create their individualized playlist and provided the framework for the evening's events. He worked with them to customize and shortened some of the opening songs and learned a song or two at their request. At Doug's recommendation, the band played three lively dance songs immediately after the bridal party and the bride and groom were introduced and before the toast and meal began. Literally, every guest was on the dance floor.! It set a fun tone for the evening and many guests said they never attended a wedding where no guests remained at the tables during a dance set. We heard over and over again that it was the best music and best wedding that many had attended. It appeared that no one left the reception until the last song was played. The music was spectacular! The performers all energetic and amazing! While I was initially surprised at the cost my husband and I feel it was well worth the expense! I wish we could do it all over again!

The best wedding band you could find! We had guests from out of state at our wedding, and they were all asking if they could fly That Vibe out to Ohio, Colorado, Tennessee, etc. to play for their weddings and parties! That Vibe brings the party! Without a doubt, booking That Vibe was the best decision we made in regards to the wedding reception. They handle everything and create the best party you could imagine. Not to mention their phenomenal voices. Their covers sound better than the originals. We love That Vibe!!!!!

Hi Doug, 

Just wanted to thank you for all your hard work in helping Adam and Kady's wedding be a huge success!! From the Planner Documents, to the e-mails and the phone calls, it was a pleasure working with you. 

You and your musicians handled everything with efficiency and professionalism from set-up to the last dance!! The Prelude, ceremony music and jazz trio were perfect (and you even tried to save the day when the mike went out under the chuppah!). Really appreciate your making the effort to be there and sing the vocals for the hora medley and to see that everything run smoothly. The 5 pc instrumental band during dinner turned out to be the perfect mix of background dinner music and light dancing..even though this was not our original intent it actually was exactly what we had envisioned as the type of music to be played during dinner..and Ted's vocals were terrific. 

Of course, the best part was That Vibe!! What a great job they did for the "dance party". With Ted as the leader, the performance of the music and the singers was so electric, the dance floor was always filled with people having a great time!!! They all did such a great job of engaging the crowd.  Exactly what I hoped for!!  So many people came up to me afterward and the next day to tell me how much they enjoyed the music...including Francine, whose quote was "Great band!" (so it may have been worth a trip away from your usual radius to play down in Del Mar!!). 

Thanks again!,

The best I can say is that at one time the band had 95% of the party up and dancing. The two songs they learned for us were perfect. When the band did the Talking Heads song I was screened from the band and I thought it was a CD until I looked. Their version of Promise Me was better than Sarah Vaughn's original. My wife and I did not invite our friends to the wedding and it was so much fun I would like to hire the band to hold a dance for our friends.

This is the second time we have had That Vibe perform at our home wedding. They were great the first time and the second time around were even better.

Like most people planning a wedding the consensus is spend your money on the booze and the Band. That Vibe is a premium band and worth the investment.

Not only do they play all the songs you would ever want on a playlist, they also have a fun group of performers that make you feel like they are having as much fun as you are.

Love these guys and gals. The lead singer is so talented, the musicians are spot on. Go ahead and audition other bands along with That Vibe and I bet you will end up selecting That Vibe!

Oh by the way, several people commented days after the wedding not about the flowers, not about the food, but about how fun the wedding was and how great the band was.

Thanks That Vibe for making another daughters special day so much fun and memorable.

"That Vibe" performed at our daughter and son-in-laws wedding this past June. With the help of the Marriott staff back in July of 2014 , I asked for a top level entertainment group for our event. They Mentioned to call Doug Waitman.

I contacted Doug immediately and reserved "That Vibe" for our wedding event. Their help in advanced planning including every aspect of organizing the reception and it was perfect. They even helped create a song for our daughter and son-in-law. That Vibe's lead member/singer actually helped MC the reception. All 11 members of the band were truly the best musicians I have seen in a while. Once past the formalities, they got everyone involved and on the dance floor. Several times they got on the dance floor themselves to make this event the best.

There was no doubt "That Vibe " made the wedding reception memorable for everyone in attendance. This was an excellent way for our daughter and son- in- law to start their life together. Many times since, guests have commented on our selection of " That Vibe" in creating one of the most memorable evenings they have seen.

Thanks so much.

Our friends recently hired you guys after hearing you at our wedding, so clearly the guests loved it,

Some comments:

"The first thing guests tell us about our wedding was how great the band was!"

"They were so professional and easy to work with. The easiest part of our wedding...and one of the best!"

"They absolutely crushed our first dance song, which they learned for our event!"

Waitman/Lemley Wedding
February 2, 2015
Padua Hills Theater
Claremont, CA

140 guests

When we began planning our wedding, we knew we had to have a band there to help us celebrate. We hoped to create an environment that all of our guests would enjoy. An environment filled with music from the past and the present. Entertainment that would have our guests (and ourselves) dancing all night long. We knew this meant enlisting the services of an experienced emcee, outstanding musicians and singers, and a group of professionals who could truly deliver. This perfectly describes our choice for the evening’s entertainment, That Vibe.
Doug Waitman, the Band's manager, was quick and thorough with his responses, exceptionally attentive to detail, considerate of our needs and very accommodating to all of our requests. The band itself was better than we expected. The vocalists and musicians were full of a contagious energy that kept us and our guests moving the entire night. Ted Heath was our emcee and was beyond perfect for us. We really appreciated his effort to give us what we wanted, and at the same time treat our guests like they were old time friends. What a great show of professionalism.
We could not have been happier with our choice to have That Vibe at our wedding. They looked sharp, acted professionally and played tight with energy and enthusiasm throughout the evening. Their preparedness, ability to perfectly perform various ranges of musical genre and their personnel’s multi-talented skills in instrumentation and vocal harmonizing is what really set them apart. They went above and beyond our expectations.
Our wedding could not have been complete without That Vibe.
We recommend them without reservation and encourage anyone looking for a professional band to check them out…immediately! We promise you will not regret it!

Dear Doug and everyone of That Vibe,

We cannot begin to thank you enough for everything you did to make our October 18th wedding perfect. The band was AMAZING.

We want you all to know how much we attribute the best day of our lives to all your hard work. We cannot even begin to list how many compliments we have heard about That Vibe. So many of our guests (as well as the Riviera Country Club!) asked for your contact information – so hopefully we'll be able to dance to you guys again at future friends' weddings!  Everyone agreed that the band was able to gauge the party, that the playlist order was perfect, and that every band member was dressed to the nines ;-) We also heard overwhelming compliments on how much you sounded like the original artists – especially Ted with our first dance song by Dave Matthews Band. Something that mattered so much to us was that we wanted people to dance….. and that dance floor was packed THE ENTIRE NIGHT.

Doug, I loved working with you through this whole processes, and am honestly a little sad that part is over. You were so organized, patient with all my changes, energetic, and had some truly great ideas. You could just hear your smile over the phone. Thanks for all your help. Good luck to everyone with everything in the future, and hopefully we cross paths again at future weddings!

Warmly,

Some bands just play for the crowd, but it seems like That Vibe is part of the crowd. Your group gets very engaged with the guests.

All of the members should have big egos but they don’t, you welcome interaction and participation and seem to be having as much fun as the rest of us.

The lighting you provided added to the experience and ambiance of the evening.

Ted is my man, he is great. He looks the part and sounds the part.

Your pre planning checklist was extremely helpful with selection of songs and timing of events from the introduction of the wedding party to the announcing of toasts, cutting of the cake and the last dance.

I look forward to your services again, sooner than I would have thought, we are anticipating another wedding next year, we will keep you posted.

Best,

When it comes to hiring an event band, you look for professionalism, reasonable pricing, and above all – a great sound! That Vibe has it all. We've used them several years in a row for our corporate holiday party and they show up on time, sound absolutely amazing, and keep the party going all night long. It seems there's no musical genre they can't conquer and with a wide range of ages in our group, there was something for everyone. We'll be sure to keep in touch with the band for future events!"

We hired "That Vibe" for our wedding at Spanish Hills Country Club on July 20th, 2013 and could not have been any happier!! Finding a great band was one of the most important things to my fiance and I for our wedding, and after a lot of research we decided to hire That Vibe! They had a huge variety of songs, from today's top radio hits, to some of the greatest sing-along oldies! This pleased our younger crowd, and my parents and the adults of the party as well! Everyone was up on the dance floor all night, because the band was amazing! There was not one moment where people were not on the floor dancing and having a great time! I've had so many people tell me what a great time they had, and how good the band was. A band can really make or break a wedding - and That Vibe definitely made ours!

Doug, the band manager was a pleasure to work with as well! From start to finish Doug was very professional, quick to respond to all my questions, and made sure to find out exactly how we wanted our wedding day night to go. He even requested the band to learn our first dance song as it was a different version than the one they already knew, and it turned out so great!

I would definitely recommend (and already have) That Vibe to all of my friends and family getting married. If you're looking for a fun, professional, outgoing band to make your wedding night perfect than you should definitely check out That Vibe.

Thanks again Doug and That Vibe for making our wedding night so special!

Your band was the highlight of our wedding reception and there were many highlights. I stopped counting the number of guests who commented it was the best time they had ever had at a wedding and your band was the major reason. The dance floor was crowded for every song, old, young, it made no difference everyone was dancing and enjoying the music. I enjoyed your performance so much that I selfishly recommended your band to my boss whose daughter was getting married in January and I knew I would be attending. Once again your band's performance was tremendous. I would recommend you to anyone thinking about having a band perform at their wedding.

"That Vibe" was perhaps the best decision we made in our wedding (apart from the choice of whom to marry). They got the party started from the moment we walked in, and kept the energy high all the way to our closing song, "Living on a Prayer." I can't say enough about the incredible range of styles they could perform - not just well, but to perfection. They hit literally every note, all the way from Sinatra to Michael Jackson to Lady Gaga and LMFAO. Importantly, they brought a level of professionalism and class to the event that really complemented the hard work we had put in ourselves. Our guests literally could not stop talking about them months after the event. Without reservations - I highly, highly recommend them for your wedding or big event!

Dear Doug, 

We were thrilled with That Vibe's music at our daughter's wedding reception. The vocalists and musicians were professional and clearly so talented. When the lead vocalist sang a solo by Adele, all of us stopped talking, put down our forks and listened in amazement. Dancing the night away was especially important to the bride and groom, and everyone did just that. We would enthusiastically recommend That Vibe as the perfect dance band for a successful party. Thank you for being part of our joyful wedding occasion.

I could write ten pages on what a great experience we had with That Vibe. We are still getting calls from people about what an awesome band we had at the wedding. I am

the mother of the bride and very busy with my work and did not have a clue about what is done at the wedding such as when is the toast, when is the first dance and cutting of the cake etc. Doug sent a package way in advance with a well organized schedule that you fill in theblanks and it had many options to choose for the schedule of the evening. They made it so easy that I never had to think about that detail. Once we filled it out a couple of weeks before the wedding Doug made a script that the band followed. The band MC'd the evening. 

Doug was so great to work with. He was very professional and called me back. We had great communication. The bride and groom picked the songs out of a 300 song list. Plenty of choices and Doug even found one song that was special to our daughter that was not on a record anywhere but only on youtube and had a friend mix it and they played it when the band was taking a break and my daughter was so nicely surprised. 
That part is just about the organization of the band. Now about the band: 
They played everything like you were hearing it live with the original artist. Sometimes I had to stop and remember that it was not the actual artist up there. They were unbelievably

talented each one of them. They were professional and courteous. Have you watched Dancing With the Stars and that band is so good that you forget it is not the original artist? Same way. 

My husband wants to find a reason to have an event and hire them so we can hear them again. It made the reception fun and memorable for all. We hated that it had to end. They started at 5:30 and played until 11:00. The last hour the young people had a blast. 

We have no regrets and just keep getting compliments on the reception.

Hi Doug, 

"That Vibe" was wonderful at the wedding. It was a magical night for us, with everything going off without a hitch. That evening at the first opportunity for people to dance, the floor was a mosh pit of fun. People from all age categories were tearing up the dance floor all night long. Let it just be said that everyone had a great time! The band was gracious, professional, entertaining, talented and so kind to let Uncle Mark sing his signature song. 
Thanks for everything. We have one more daughter to go...and will definitely call you when the time comes. 
Sincerely,

Doug, 
We want to thank you and That Vibe for making our wedding celebration so memorable with such an amazing performance. That Vibe was absolutely incredible and our guests were dancing ALL NIGHT! 
So many guests commented during and after the wedding how great the band was and how varied their repertoire was throughout the night. The East Coasters were VERY impressed, especially because of the bands they are used to in New York. 
I would like to write-up a 'review' for you to put on your website for That Vibe, and would be happy to be a reference if needed. 

Best regards, 

Jeremy (Groom)

That Vibe was great! Starting with Ted, he is awesome and makes a great Master of Ceremony during the reception.   The band was simply wonderful and got everyone dancing and having a great time. We didn't want the evening to end!

That Vibe is an over-the-top incredible band. Having been to a few dozen weddings now, we recognize how integral a band can be for the success of a wedding. That Vibe met our expectations and then some - our dance floor was packed with people dancing and having a blast for pretty much the entirety of our special night. And, it's not that we just have a really dance-friendly set of family or friends. That Vibe had a superhuman ability to read the crowd and play songs that everybody loved - Everyone who has called us since the wedding has said first and foremost said "that band was absolutely amazing!". We couldn't agree more!

Thanks!

Dear Doug:

Vivian and I wanted to thank your band for the amazing entertainment they provided at our wedding. We were blown away by how talented the whole band was! During our first dance, Vivian told me the band is so good and it took me a second to realize that it wasn't Frank Sinatra singing, it was actually your band! "That Vibe" is excellent at performing songs exactly like the original artists. Your band not only performed classic songs flawlessly but new top 40 hits as well. We loved the range and variety of songs "That Vibe" performed! All of our guests loved the atmosphere and entertainment your band provided. We were stunned that the dance floor was never empty! Everyone kept saying they could dance the night away! We can't thank you enough for the top quality entertainment you provided us. We can't wait to recommend "That Vibe" to all our friends and family for future events!

Sincerely,

Adrian Jayasinha (Groom)

I am so grateful for the great job That Vibe did at our wedding. My husband was pretty much judging the success of the wedding on how good the band was, and he could not have been more pleased.

This whole process was handled so professionally. We had no experience and a logistically difficult outdoor venue. Doug came up with many scenarios and had good suggestions in an effort to have the most cost-effective result that would give us what we wanted and needed. He was agreeable when we had last-minute changes and accommodated our request to have the band accompany friends who wanted to sing a special song for the couple. The comprehensive questionnaire sent before the wedding gave us a chance to give our input on the songs that would be played and forced us to consider issues we had not even thought of. They would have even learned new songs if what we wanted was not on the list. When the big day finally arrived,  the dance floor was always full because the band was so great! One good song just led to the next, and our guests had a great time. We could have not been more pleased, and would wholeheartedly recommend this band to anyone.

There really isn't much to say other than "Absolutely Fantastic" ... no one wanted it to end ... if I didn't know better I'd swear the original artists were there!!

"That Vibe was a class act from start to finish. They went through
the entire night months before the wedding in thorough detail, and the
night of the wedding they never missed a beat! All of our guests,
both young and old, danced and partied the entire night because of the
great music. We're still getting compliments on the band many months
after the wedding. They truly made our wedding a night to remember!
Thank you That Vibe!"

David & Susan Holtzman 30th Anniversary Party
Mountain View Country Club-La Quinta

Doug,

That Vibe proved to be everything Doug advised us they would be. Although our 30th Aniversary party was to be outdoors, at the last minute we needed to change the event to be inside.  We had concerns that a 10 piece band might be a bit over powering in a small room, but not only was the music perfect in every aspect the band went well above our expectations. They played every song we requested and even learned one of our favorites that they performed perfectly.

Our guest could not believe how wonderful the band sounded and easily they could dance to every song without going deaf. Each song played sounded as if the original artist was on stage singing for us. On our 20th anniversary party we were fortunate to have the Platters play for us and for our 30th we were just as fortunate to have That Vibe share the night with us.

We would highly recommend Doug and That Vibe for any event where you want the perfect band!

Dear Doug,

I am sorry it took me so long to get back to you. There are so many reasons why That Vibe will always be at the top of my list of favorites in my life.

1. The Band is incredible. The young people may want a dj because they think they will get the "real artist" but, all the young people at my daughter's wedding said they couldn't believe what a difference live music and real musicians make. Many of them are now hooked on live music! They truly made the evening incredible.

2. At the last minute the band learned the song for the father/daughter dance. That made my evening complete. The band converted a country song "In My Daughter's Eyes" to a contemporary song - much more to the liking of dad and daughter. Once again, the band and singers were fabulous.

3. My mom and dad were the last couple dancing the anniversary dance. It was also the last dance my mom and dad ever danced together, as my mom died from lung cancer 3 months later. The emcee didn't know how special he made that dance - but it has been a lasting memory for all attending the wedding.

4. The band and band leader were professional, adaptable, and never skipped a beat.
You are all wonderful people.

Thank you,
Shelly Romo

Hi Doug:

Will and I are on our temporary honeymoon down in San Diego and we were
talking about what a great day we had yesterday. It was due in large part to
your wonderful band. I have never heard so many people compliment a couple
on how fun and put together the band was. Most of all, our guests
complimented That Vibe on actually feeling "the vibe" of the crowd and
knowing what they wanted to hear. This was so important to our crowd since
they all like to dance. The other feedback that I wanted to make sure to
tell you was that the medleys were really great!!! People could not stop
raving about them.

Your staff provided so much entertainment for our guests and really pulled
together a first class event. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts
and hope that you know that all of your hard work has definitely paid off.
We have referred many people to you and will continue to do so in the
future. Please extend our thank you to all of the band members.

Sincerely,

Megan & Will Jacoby
